The Eco Partnership Ltd., based in the UK, announced an exclusive agreement with the Canadian company Entech Coatings Inc, a private label of Prima Developments, to distribute in Europe wall and roof coatings carrying the brand name Ceramic Insulcoat with Cerylium™.
Entech Coatings, based in Surrey, British Columbia, is a manufacturer of high-performance coatings for wall and roof applications.
Originally developed by a German chemist in the 1960s, the Ceramic Insulcoat product line is the result of advanced manufacturing processes and formulations involving the proprietary formula known as Cerylium™. The manufacturer says the ingredient is the key to the creation of a year-round thermal barrier responsible for maintaining building temperatures in the winter and lowering them in summer, reducing energy costs and environmental impacts. The 100% acrylic water-borne coatings do not include formaldehyde or other chemicals harmful to the environment, the company says.
The coatings are described as weatherproof and permeable; resistant to fade, cracking, or color change; and highly durable. A companion product, Sealbond, is used to protect stonework or brickwork, and is recommended for use on historic buildings where surface or mortar erosion is a concern.
The Eco Partnership says it is made up of a team of “ecolutionaries” drawn from the property and building industries, and focuses on environmentally friendly technologies in seeking to identify and market pioneering and sustainable products specifically for the built environment. The company says the Ceramic Insulcoat product line fit its criteria due to performance and composition characteristics and an “unparalleled green report card.”
Roland Langset, president of Prima Developments, said the joint venture of Entech and The Eco Partnership “comes at a crucial point in the sales growth of the InsulCoat product.” He added, “As the world moves to a low-carbon economy there will be a competitive advantage for those who embrace these technologies.”
